Publisher's Summary

A fascinating guide to a career as a private investigator written by award-winning journalist Howie Kahn and based on the real-life experiences of an expert in the field—essential listening for someone considering a path to this profession.

Becoming a Private Investigator puts a seemingly out-of-reach profession within the your grasp. Weaving practical how-to advice with inspiring case studies, Kahn provides actionable steps anyone can take to pursue a career as a P.I. as he shadows two experienced American P.I.s, Sheila Wysocki and Mark Gillespie, both of whom are investigating a series of deaths about which many questions remain.

What skills must they master to find out the truth? What risks must they take to succeed? In a narrative full of shocking details, Becoming a Private Investigator sheds light on the professionals who fight for justice and change the lives of others forever.

Loved it!

This book is not meant to teach you about becoming a PI. It’s the background stories of those who have become one, and what they’ve gone through to tirelessly help get families the justice they deserve. It was well written and the stories were amazing.

The Title of this book is misleading

This book provides no information about becoming a PI and especially zero information about starting a PI Firm.
